Hello! Thank you for taking the time to check out my profile to see if I am a good match for you on your journey to becoming a healthier version of yourself.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with 8 years of experience providing therapy in both inpatient and outpatient settings. I primarily work with teenagers and women who are struggling with low self-esteem, depression, anger, relational issues, and trauma, as well as with those trying to navigate new phases of life. I have worked extensively with clients whose patterns of avoidance or use of maladaptive coping skills have led them to being in positions that they never thought they could be in. When people end up in these positions, sometimes it’s hard to even know where to begin or figure out how to make the changes that are needed possible. Past clients have appreciated my help when they are in these positions, specifically noting how my empathy and non-judgmental stance has assisted them with feeling comfortable and confident in implementing different strategies needed to improve their quality of life.
The therapeutic approaches that I tend to draw from the most are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Client-Centered; however, it is important to note that I am not a “one size fits all” kind of therapist. Each person is unique and I believe in tailoring treatment to fit the needs of the client. The only expectations that I have for my clients are open and honest communication and a willingness to make changes within themselves.
